Abstract. Recent developments in imaging cameras has opened a new way of analyzing facial expression. We would like to take advantage from this new technology and present a method of imaging and processing images of human face as a response to the particular stimuli. The response in this case is represented by the facial expressions and the stimuli are still images representing six basic emotions according to Eckmann. Working hypothesis of presented research, states that the new method of tracking facial expressions is more precise and distinctive enough to give characteristic description of the analyzed human face. The biggest advantage of the presented method, in the opinion of research team, is the fact that it uses remote sensing techniques and presents dynamics of the changes happening on the human face. Therefore, FMRI might not be required, which decreases the costs of experiments, additionally, method is less stressful for the examined persons and provides more natural reactions.
